LINUX STORAGE --
While the F2FS and EXT4 updates for Linux 4.3 weren't too meaty, there's a bit more going on in the Btrfs camp.

Chris Mason sent in his Btrfs file-system updates today for the Linux 4.3 kernel merge window. Within the Btrfs updates this round is a TRIM patch to fix some corner cases, RAID 5 and RAID6 fixes, support for new blkio controllers, and various other fixes and code clean-ups.

More details on the Btrfs changes for Linux 4.3 can be found via this pull request.
